Dear Université Catholique de Lille Student Community,
We hope each of you is staying home and staying safe. Our students’ well-being and safety is one of our greatest responsibilities and we are taking it very seriously during this global pandemic.
We understand that confinement in small student dorms or residences can be difficult; however, it is essential that each of us does our part to help slow the progression of the COVID-19 disease in Lille, in France, and around the world.
Each of you should have information from your particular faculty or school relating to your academic studies and how to complete your semester online.
This webpage is intended to provide you with important information and some ideas on how to make the most of your time during the mandatory government confinement. We have put together a number of internet resources that will provide you with updates from the French government, the City of Lille, and the University, as well as a wide variety of things to help keep you occupied during the next few weeks, from virtual museum visits to online workouts, and from easy cooking recipes to free e-books and films. We hope you find the information pertinent and useful.
If you are in need of any assistance, please contact the international student office of your school or faculty.
We continue to persevere as a community and thank each of you in advance for your cooperation.
